This is my first fountain pen. I like the small size and the nib is not too thick. I usually write with .38 pens and this is probably the equivalent of a .5.

I used it on my Moleskine journal and there is some bleedthrough so I might not use this one as my everyday pen on my Moleskine.

Overall good for the price but I'll definitely try something a bit thinner.

Purchased this as my first trial fountain pen, a trial of some sort. I find that fountain pens aren't too great unless I'm sitting down and committing myself to writing. The portability is nice, but I found this pen to be inconvenient to writing things down on the go.

This is a very good pen, I love it. The ink is smooth and consistent. Although one cartridge will only lasts you for so long. I suggest buying the refills as well.

Love it for writing! It is my first time using it since last time I picked a fountain pen was in middle school (it was LONG AGO)! I adore it for sleek and smooth feeling while writing. However, I purchased it on a purpose of using it as my sketching pen. It saddened me to say that it is not exactly best choice for quick sketching. The ink blotched and bled greatly while sketching. I gave this product a three stars for its excellent beginner writing tool, not as a cheap and effective sketching pen for any artists generally.

If you aimed for a cheap and effective fountain pen for writing, then you will not regret for buying it!

This pen writes really nice. I converted it so I could use my choice of black permanent ink instead of cartridges.

Incredibly smooth writer, but even with copious amounts of silicone there's some minor leakage around the threads once it's been converted into an eyedropper. It really needs to be stored upright at all times, which precludes the ease of carriage.

This was my first fountain pen and I must say, I will be trying more fountain pens because this one was great. Feels very smooth, ink is pretty black. I just used some cheap notebook and didn't have any problems with bleeding or feathering. My only regret is not buying refills.

Great compact pen for sketching especially after an eye dropper conversion. Smooth and "wet" for a fine point. Would be amazing with a medium nib.

writes very cool, love the feel, it is a little bit chubby for my taste in pens usually, but I kind of like it.
the nib is a bit thick to be a fine.

These pens have a remarkably good nib for a small pocket pen. The cap posts securely and fits securely over the nib with a water-tight seal greatly reducing drying out of the nib. The cartridges are small but have a good strong seal to the pen compared to the "standard" cartridges in many other brands. The opening of the cartridge allows easy eye-dropper refilling from bottled ink. I have never had a leak from these pens. I have never had a crack in the plastic though carried in a pants pocket for months. I do prefer Noodler's inks and they work very well in these pens. If I were to give one small suggestion to Pilot about the colors of the plastic clips, the difference between black, blue-black, and blue is pretty subtle; it would be nice if they were more-distinguishable. Such a minor point for such a fine pen at a very reasonable price!
